    Abstract

    Infrared spectroscopy is widely used in forensic science laboratories to identify and compare synthetic textile fibers. It is particularly useful for differentiating between various types of acrylic or polyester and polyester/polyether fibers where copolymerization or the introduction of new polymer types has been used to modify physical properties or improve dyeing characteristics.
